The large rocks of salt are firmly shaped and cut as the first step towards a complete process. It needs specific edges and rounds to later shape it towards any diversified choice. This process is conducted through a Lathe machine which cuts down the large salt rocks into smaller pieces.
However, there is a possible ratio that salt blocks might get fractured during this process. As the salt dust is intense while cutting the blocks of the salt. Attention to the detail is given to achieve the best shapes which are attained during the procedure of cutting.
Towards the completion of this step, the salt blocks are first dusted so that all the excessive dust produced during the extraction and cutting procedure wears off. This process is then taken forward by individually washing these rocks with as little consumption of water as possible.
The rocks are then left for a day or two so that they can be dried. During the process of washing, superfluous utilization of water is avoided because it can dry out the minerals surfaced on the blocks thus the lesser the water, the better it is!
The most crucial part of the entire procedure is the hole punching. Most of the times, while carrying this task, a lot of salt blocks get wasted. The labour, hole punching is done through different deep holing machines, so that wastage can be avoided to the most.
The size of the holes may vary according to the size of the rocks and the lights being inserted into them. Some holes are drilled all the way through, very deep, whereas some holes are done on the surface of the top.
For the base fitting, excellent quality Bloodwood is picked to provide a strong and firm base. Bloodwood is a beautiful dense hardwood, which unlike other red coloured wood, stays red. The wood is then exactly shaped as the salt blocks are, and a hole is punched into them too so that the light bulb can be inserted.
After all the cutting and shaping tasks, the wooden base is attached to the shaped salt blocks by glueing them together.
